Truckers in British Columbia are threatening to bring that
Canadian province to a screeching halt if the Canadian government does not do
something to stem the rising costs of diesel.
More than 300 unionized and non-unionized truckers met in
Vancouver on Sunday, April 24, to express their outrage about increasing fuel
costs. The truckers suggested several possible solutions, including tax
rebates, tax refunds or a boycott of oil companies until they bring prices
Another meeting is set for May 1 in Surrey, British
Columbia, where truckers expect to formulate a plan of action.
